Kosovo president resigned after ruling by constitutional court

On September 27, 2010, Kosovar President Fatmir Sejdiu resigned after the Constitutional Court of Kosovo (CCK) ruled that his dual roles as president and head of the Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK) violated the country's constitution. Sejdiu was replaced on an interim basis by Speaker of Parliament Jakup Krasniqi of the Democratic Party of Kosovo (PDK). The government of Kosovo collapsed following Sejdiu's resignation. The constitutional controversy deepened after the CCK invalidated the country's 2011 presidential elections over allegations of voting irregularities.
